How to Add Contacts to Existing Lists:

You can search Agility for individual contacts and outlets, then add them to your existing list(s).

Step 2. Click on the result that appears in the drop down to open the profile page of the journalist. 

Step 3. Click on the Actions drop down (found in the upper right corner of the screen) and select Save contact to a list.

Step 4. Select save to an existing list. To add to a single list, select the list from the drop down and click on Save and Continue.

How to Remove Contacts or Outlets From Lists:

It is possible to remove several Contacts or Outlets from a list.
